When we talk about gamers, we’re not talking about traditional man cave games such as snooker, darts or air hockey. We’ll have another article to focus on those games but for now, we’re all about electronic gamers.
You know, the video gamer that gets so obsessed with Fortnite (or Pacman in the old days!) to the point of not ever knowing what the time is. Yes, video games can be addictive, and you’ll find that now days, the gamers that used to be hidden away in bedrooms of their parent’s homes, now have their own allocated room.
This breed has been booted out of the family home and have a castle to call their own. So, whilst the traditional man cave (snooker table, bar, card table etc…) still well and truly exists, these guys have created a gamer man cave.
So, what does this type of man cave consist of? Whilst you may still have a bar or beer fridge, the main focus is on screens, and plenty of them. Television screens and computer monitors can take up a good portion of the room. This may be a little over the top, but can you image a set up like this?

? 360-Degree Swivel
? Blue Only Color
This chair is specifically made with gaming in mind, so it has an ergonomic design with ample padding. Made from soft PU leather upholstery, you will benefit from the comforts you’d find in more expensive furniture.
I think most gamers or thrill seekers like myself, would love the racing car design that can assume multiple positions of relaxation. The bucket seat makes sure of this, along with the extra thick padding.
So what else can this racing style chair offer you? Here’s what:
- I really like the arm-rests which can slide vertically to find the correct position for your desired comfort. What good is a gamer chair with no arm-rests!

- You’ll appreciate the highly durable construction with the frame being made from tubular steel. And of course, there’s a 360-degree swivel so you can switch from monitor to monitor if you have a few set-up.
- You’ve probably never seen a chair similar to this, that doesn’t have a lift system. The pneumatic gas lift system on this chair is triggered by a low handle lever which will adjust the chair to your desired height.
- The chair comes packaged with all tools and instructions for easy assembly.
This gamer chair only comes in the blue color but if you click on the ‘Check it Out’ button, other similar chairs will appear below this one in various colors.
Something to note is that there is no lock to keep the chair from swiveling. I wouldn’t have thought this a problem, but it has been bought up in the customer reviews.
